Invisalign Clear Aligners
Do crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth keep you from sharing your smile with the world? Maybe you’ve always wanted a straighter smile, but the hassle of braces has kept you from pursuing orthodontic treatment. Crooked teeth no longer have to keep you from complete confidence in your smile. Invisalign clear aligners straighten teeth without the visibility and hassle associated with braces.
Our Tempe, Arizona dentist office offers Invisalign for patients who want to discreetly and gently treat mild to severe orthodontic concerns.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign provides a discreet, gentle alternative to braces for many patients. Invisalign corrects most orthodontic issues through a series of clear plastic aligners. Patients work with their dentist or orthodontist to correct crowded and crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, and spacing issues.
Is Invisalign Better Than Braces?
Invisalign clear aligners provide an excellent alternative to braces for many patients. Since Invisalign aligners are clear, they correct teeth without the visibility of braces. Many patients find braces painful immediately following an adjustment. Brackets and wires occasionally cause discomfort when they poke and scrape the inside of the mouth.
Most patients find Invisalign aligners move the teeth gently - causing far less discomfort immediately following an adjustment.
Because Invisalign aligners are removable, there are no long lists of off-limit foods or tedious care routines. Simply remove the aligners to eat or care for your teeth, and pop them back in to resume treatment.
The convenience and discrete nature of Invisalign make them a popular choice for adult orthodontic therapy. Teens make great candidates, too! Progression of teeth movement occurs by changing out aligners, you won’t have to schedule “adjustment” appointments. Enjoy fewer and shorter trips to our office throughout your Invisalign experience.

Alternatives to Invisalign
Braces are the traditional and best-known method for straightening teeth and correcting orthodontic issues. Braces treatments, on average, take about 24 months to complete, and a dentist or orthodontist manages treatment. Patients have regular office visits to check the progress of treatment and make adjustments to their braces.
At-home aligners have become a popular option for a straighter smile. These aligners work similarly to Invisalign but without the in-person care of a dentist or orthodontist. All consultations are held virtually. While the potential time savings may seem attractive, in-person care is always best. In-person checkups provide thorough examinations allowing your team to detect potential problems and avoid severe long-term issues.
What is the Process for Getting Invisalign?
Before you begin treatment, we have an initial consultation to discuss your orthodontic needs and confirm you’re a candidate for Invisalign.
Following the consultation, we use 3D images to create your series of aligners and a plan for your treatment. Once you receive your first set of trays, you’ll use your series of aligners under our supervision until your treatment is complete.
How long Do I Need to Wear Invisalign Correctors?
The exact length of treatment depends on your precise orthodontic needs and your consistency in wearing your aligners. Most patients wear their aligners for 12-18 months.
